Note from Lauren: I personalized a copy of each of the books below, and I will be posting reviews for them soon. I was meant to include them in this post, but I haven't received them in the mail yet. That's probably my fault though as I didn't order them right away. Life just gets in the way sometimes! I do want to thank Put Me in the Story for allowing me to personalize these books though, and I can't wait to share them with you!

We've subscribed to the National Geographic for Kids for years. I love reading the articles and seeing the pictures as much as the kids do.

What a great prize! The San Diego Zoo is topnotch.

National Geographic is awesome when you need to teach nonfiction, and I know young boys in particular love looking at the pictures and learning about different animals.
